So the bill was passed. Mr. Stevens moved that the vote last taken be reconsidered, and also moved that the motion to reconsider be laid on the table; which latter motion was agreed to. Pending the question on agreeing to the title of the bill, Mr. Stevens moved the previous question, and no quorum voted thereon. Mr. Holman moved, at 2 o'clock and 20 minutes p. m., that the House adjourn; which motion was disagreed to. The question then recurring on the demand for the previous question, it was seconded and the main question ordered; and under the operation thereof the title of the bill was agreed to. Mr. Stevens moved that the vote last taken be reconsidered, and also moved that the motion to reconsider be laid on the table; which latter motion was agreed to. Ordered, That the Clerk request the concurrence of the Senate in the said bill. Mr. Clark, from the Committee on Printing, to whom the subject was referred, reported the following resolution; which was read, considered, and agreed to, viz: Resolved, That ten thousand extra copies of the annual report of the Secretary of the Treasury on the state of the finances be printed for the use of the present House. Mr. Wickliffe gave notice, under the rule, of his intention to move for leave to introduce a bill to protect and grant relief to the citizens of loyal States whose property and slaves have been wrongfully taken, seduced, and abstracted by the officers and soldiers of the army of the United States.

Mr. Wickliffe, by unanimous consent, submitted the following resolution; which was read, considered, and agreed to, viz: Resolved, That the Committee of Ways and Means be instructed to inquire into the propriety of amending so much of the act of last session, “to provide internal revenue to support the government and pay the interest on the public debt,” as requires the manufacturers of spirits, beer, and porter to report on the 1st, 10th, and 20th days of each month the quantity of spirits, beer, and porter distilled, &c. Also, the propriety of repealing so much of said act as requires a report “of the quantity of grain and other material or vegetable production put into the mash-tub, and that a record of the same shall be kept,” that reports of quantity made shall be kept. The Speaker having announced as the business next in order the bill of the House (H.R. 136) to expedite the collection of the revenue and the final disposition of suits arising therefrom in the collection district of New York, heretofore postponed until this day, On motion of Mr. Sheffield, Ordered, That its consideration be further postponed until Monday, the 5th of January next. Mr. Stevens, by unanimous consent, from the Committee of Ways and Means, reported a bill (H.R. 592) to amend an act entitled “An act to provide internal revenue to support the government and to pay interest on the public debt,” approved July 1, 1862; which was read a first and second time, ordered to be printed, and its further eonsideration postponed until to-morrow at 1 o'clock p. m., and, by unanimous consent, made a special order for that day. Mr. Hickman, on leave, introduced a bill (H. R. 593) for the suppression of rebellion, treason, and insurrection, and for other purposes; which was read a first and second time, referred to the Committee on Military Affairs, and ordered to be printed. Mr. Stevens, on leave, introduced a bill (H. R. 594) to provide revenue to support the government; which was read a first and second time, referred to the Committee of Ways and Means, and ordered to be printed. Mr. Wright submitted the following resolution, viz: Resolved by the House of Representatives of the United States in Congress assembled: 1. That the rebellion, on the part of the seceding States against the government and laws of this Union was deliberately wicked and without reasonable cause; the compact of the Union being perpetual, no State has the constitutional power to forcibly secede, and that there was no grievance, real or imaginary, upon the part of the seceding States, for the redress of which the Constitution does not furnish ample remedies. 2. That the rebellion, being in contravention of the Constitution and laws, it is the duty of the government to put it down, without regard to cost, or the consequences that may befall those engaged in it, and all necessary constitutional means for this purpose, and this alone should be furnished by the people.
